So.. today was a really long day. Wow.
Woke up this morning with a splitting migraine.. I couldn't even move my head hurt so bad. >_< Slept through most of the day, then got up, showered, watched Good Luck Chuck, did some photoshopping, foruming, blah blah.
I guess the first thing to say is.. been doing quite a bit of work at A Family Thing, trying to get the site set up and forums running there again. If you'd like to visit go to: [link]
Also, I redid my personal site, its got a new theme: [link]
Next up is DG Media.. It's a new graphics community with tutorial indexing, forums to post works for cnc, chatting, help and support, etc. etc. I'm a global mod of it, yay, so go register and check it out!DG Media
Related to dA... I was recently browsing the AAO Tracker Gallery forums.. and an old thread had been reopened.. Evidentally someone had taken an image off of dA that wasn't intended to be used in any piece. Well, this person was caught, called a ripper, many people were offended because the moderators wouldn't do anything. It was just a big, terrible mess, and still is now.
Unfortunately, due to this incident.. After sitting there and watching the AAO Tracker moderators not doing anything about the blatant rip, I will no longer be posting artwork in the gallery, nor posting cnc. After this week's SOTW is over, which I have entered, I won't be posting any further.
How can we stop such problems as ripping from occurring when the people in charge fail to take action?
For those of you interested, my entry in the SOTW: Smudge, can be viewed here: [link]
Well, today I started on the 2nd Emote-inspired wallpaper [link]
The first is here: [link]
I'm considering starting a series of these.. As the first seemed to be my most popular deviation. I think it will be quite fun, as well.
Its difficult though.. My pencil-paper skills are horrible, so the simplicity of these makes it easier on me. =]
It's obvious I definitely need the practice on pieces like these.. but I hope to do more in the near future!
Finally.. a HUGE thanks to
I saw his piece: [link]
And after about an hour of chatting with him, he decided to allow me to get this piece as my first tattoo! I'm really excited about this, even though I've been warned about the lines fading or bleeding, I'm prepared to listen to advice given and do what I need to, without changing the design, to get this tattoo.
I think it's simply beautiful, and can't wait to get it!
Thanks a lot AzhiDahaka!
Well, that's it for now.. What a long one! Take care everyone, and thanks for the support!
